    Hi Everyone,

    The below has been cataloged as having been minted in year 986(Islamic Calendar) and in the Iranian City of Hamadan. Can anyone circle/pinpoint the bit of calligraphy which attests to both those aforementioned attributes. My knowledge of Arabic is a little lacking to say the least :)

    When I first read the title, I thought Safavid Mithqal was a 40 year old virgin. :smuggrin:

    this is hands down the best comment/statement I’ve heard all week hahaha! Now that I’m rereading my statement I can certainly see it giving that vibe
